When anyone with artsy inclinations walks into Claudia’s (Mirrix’s esteemed President) studio, they get lost in a world of fiber and beady inspiration. From looms (most with half-made pieces) to finished pieces and curious equipment like electric skein winders, it’s a fun little sanctuary to explore.
I, on the other hand, live in a one-bedroom apartment. It is in a lovely neighborhood that is walking distance from restaurants, bars, theaters, shops and pretty much everything else anyone could possibly need. We joke that we never have to leave a 5-block radius.
What I give up is space. My office is a desk in the window-corner of our living room flanked by dog and cat beds and one shelf that holds my looms and everything else weaving-related (everything else is in a closet, we were blessed with some decent closet space). It isn’t a swoon-worthy studio/office by any means, but it works for now.
A customer suggested to me a few months ago that having people share pictures of their studio space of Mirrix owners would be fun and interesting. I agreed and added the idea to my ever-growing list of things we should do. Now I’m finally getting around to it and we’re making it into a contest!
Send us a picture or two or three of your studio space (and by that, we mean whatever your workspace might be. It could be a beautiful dedicated studio space, but it might just be your coffee table). If you have a Mirrix (or 6), include it/them in the picture. Also include a blurb (fewer than 500 words) about your space. What do you like about it? How would your ideal studio differ? What’s unique about your space?
We will publish all valid entries in a series of blog posts and to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
We will choose the winner based on creativity of the blurb and photo/s.
Email all entries to email@example.com with the subject “Studio Space Contest”. Write your blurb directly in the email. Please make sure all pictures are smaller than 1000 x 1000 pixels and are larger than 250 x 250 pixels. Image files only. We will not accept images in documents or .pdf files.
All entries due by 11/21/2014.
Grand Prize: $50 Mirrix Looms gift certificate
